Music New Features/Improvements Request Summary
REQUEST: Hierarchical Genres

I use genres extensively.  I use the Allmusic genres and tag my files manually (long process, I know).  I find these genres to be the most accurate and consistent out there, but there's something like 1200 of them.  They way they structure it (can be seen at www.allmusic.com/genres) is 21 main genres, then each genre has sub-genres, then those subs have styles.  Like so:

Country
- Contemporary Country
- - Contemporary Bluegrass

I would like to select genres in Kodi this way.  The problem is everyone uses just one genre field, so I use that single frame for all of it, comma delimited: "Country,Contemporary Country,Contemporary Bluegrass".  This results in 3 items in the genres list in Kodi and everything behaves properly, it just turns into one huge list.  I would like a feature or an addon that would allow me to expand down to the level of detail I wish - or even just select the top level - and return the files accordingly.

I know not many people put this much attention into genres, but it's great to select something like "Hair Metal" and throw it on random and hear what's expected.
